Support » Plugin: Quick Event Manager » Undated Events?

  • I read in the documentation that events need at least a title and date, but I am hoping you have a suggestion for how to make the date optional.

    Since we began developing the site in which we’ve installed QEM, the world has gone crazy with Corona virus. Our client teaches massage therapists and yoga teachers, and has had to shift her business to an entirely virtual model for the time being.

    Most of the virtual courses she has planned will take place at specific dates and times. Everything we’ve set up so far in QEM is working brilliantly to organize the courses and display the information.

    But, we have now learned we’ll need to figure out how to best include evergreen or undated events for self-serve virtual courses.

    The only thing I can figure out so far is to put in a crazy date range, and then try to figure out how to hide the date with CSS only for the events that shouldn’t have a date.

    Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.

    I’ll have a look, but I can’t promise anything at the moment.

    So I have had a think.

    Without massive coding changes QEM needs a date.

    With your evergreen and self serve virtual course, there are lees of an event as such and more of a ‘purchase’ are they not?

    What features of QEM are you using for these more than a button and a payment mechanism ( if you are taking payments)?

    Yes, you are correct; these self-serve options are more like a purchase.

    We are not using QEM for registration and payments. The client’s courses are set up in Acuity Scheduling, and payments are run through there.

    In the editing window for each event, I added the button code to trigger a modal overlay with the purchase/scheduling window.

    Mainly we’re using QEM to organize and display the events.
